Ernie Mayne - Fried Fruit Fritters (CDR25)

Ernie Mayne CD
Ernie Mayne was a giant of the Music Hall - 20 stone in weight to be exact. His style was similarly loud and exuberant. Under the tag "The Simple One", Ernie's down-to-earth songs are of simple pleasures, mainly connected with food and drink. The song "What d'ye think of that" was later used as the basis for Lonnie Donegan's famous skiffle number "My Old Man's a Dustman".

Ernie Mayne was the first Music Hall Artist to broadcast on the Radio when he performed "Wireless on the Brain" on 11 October 1922

Ernie Mayne's most famous song "You can't get many pimples, on a pound of pickled pork" leads this 25 track CD.
